Justice vs Judiciary: Justice Enthroned or Entangled in India?

Sudhanshu Ranjan (Author)

There can be no dispute that the judges of the high courts and the Supreme Court of India wield tremendous powers. However, power comes with a price which bestows huge responsibility. Building on this narrative, the book advocates that judges must be made accountable not only in respect of their personal conduct and integrity, but also in respect of the judicial verdicts they deliver.

This book, thus, critically discusses Articles 141, 142, and 144, which make the Supreme Court the most powerful institution in the country, and Articles 32 and 136, which also confer wide powers on it. Using these powers, the apex court sometimes, unmindful of the budgetary and other vital implications, tends to pass orders which lack the scope for implementation. The book suggests measures to improve the functioning of Indian judicial system and save the institutions of justice from turning autocratic and narcissistic.

Contents: Foreword. 1. Introduction. 2. Accountability of Judges. 3. Binary Application of Laws. 4. Supreme Court’s Power to Do Complete Justice. 5. Judicial Delays: Matter Is in the Court, Incompetence Is the Main Reason. 6. Lawyer, Heal Thyself. 7. My Lord or Your Excellency. Index.
